I Have Idiopathic Gastroparesis

Melissa Murdock

I’m Melissa, am 38, and have been diagnosed with GP since March 2017. I believe it all started after I was put on an antibiotic for an ear infection. Within a few days I started having issues. I’ve had 4 failed PICC lines/2 TPN rounds and a failed J Tube. I am waiting for the insurance to approve a bypass surgery to remove about 75% of my stomach. I’m very blessed and married my husband at the end of June (the day after getting a PICC placed). We have a big, busy family, we each have 3 kids (yes that’s 6 total) and are a proud US Navy family. I have horror story after horror story of ER visits/hospital stays but I will continue to fight. For myself, husband and kids ?
